Clarkson’s Car Years – Who Killed The British Motor Industry? – Video  (BBC 2000)

Comment: Back in the days when the elite were trying to break union power, the workers got blamed for constantly going out on deliberately provoked strikes. Many still blame the workers for the demise of the car industry, but if you look at it logically, it was the abysmally poor management. This is easily demonstrated by the fact that the Japanese, Toyota and Honda, came here, employed the same workers, and have enjoyed a long history unfettered by industrial action.   

This is due to the management expertise of the Japanese. Their managers are highly trained and gain their positions on merit. In those days ours were untrained and gained their positions by nepotism.

Comment: The British car industry was killed mainly by laziness. The managers were too lazy to fix obviously broken designs, the designers were too lazy to update 30 year old cars, the workers were too lazy to actually come to work and the government was too lazy to launch a proper investigation.

I’d get angry, but I’m too lazy for that.
